There’s rave about the croquettes at Love is Blind, a nuevo restaurant in Merrick Park in the Gables. Well, at least that was a common thread in the reviews I read before going there, so I had to see for myself. I mean come on, croquettes? Not that I have anything against croquettes, they’re great in a pinch. But I wouldn’t necessarily rave about them. 

When they arrived at the table I was disappointed. I mean they looked like the same thing they have at every bodega and family party in Soflo. However I didn’t write them off, I was totally clean slate when I tried them. And wow, wonderful, whimsical, delight danced in my mouth. Kind of like when it was insisted that I order the regular spaghetti at Scarpeta by the friend I dined with there. A humble, baseline, everyday, everyman dish, transformed. Cheesy, Serano ham, mouth melding, deliciousness. I was off to a great start. 

Next I tried the braised steak with Marsela wine reduction, on creamy garbanzo beans, topped with a fried egg. Now anyone who knows me well knows I’m a sucker for a fried egg, so I had to order it. So happy I did. One word, scrumptious. 

I also tried the baby spinach and quinoa salad with toasted sesame vinegrette and the roasted pork over faux risotto (orzo), both as splendid as the aforementioned dishes. 

Love may be blind, but you can definitely taste it at Love is Blind. Oh and make sure you taste the croquettes, you’ll fall in love most definitely!

The most sensible people to be met with in society are people of the world who argue from what they see and know, instead of spinning cobweb distinctions of what things ought to be.

Angeliques Euro Cafe is excellent! Get the escargot, the fisherman’s stew (mussels, shrimp, clams, salmon and potatoes) and the oreo cheescake. 

Be happy.

14 Hands. Handily balances robust flavor with a velvety smooth tenor, oak hints with a touch of the fullness of the fruit. Like Coltrane on sax and Ella filling the room with the ease of her effortless, silky vocals…

For weekends with a stogie, but for weekdays it’s still lovely.
